Headphone 耳筒 / Beyerdynamic / DT 100
DT 100

The worldwide standard closed headphone for monitoring, ENG/EFP and live-applications.

Introduction

Future Music magazine, September 2010 on the Dt 100 with 400 ohms:
Often referred to as the Yamaha NS10s of the headphone world, the Beyerdynamic DT100s are a professional audio staple in studios around the world due to their excellent isolation, comfortable earpieces and accurate representation. They might not be too pleasant to listen to, but they deliver incredibly accurate sound reproduction, warts and all. Coming with a detachable, proprietary cable, every element of the DT100s is replaceable, right down to the earpads. The DT100s’ bass response is weak to say the least, but that’s not what they’re made for. Where they excel is the midrange and mid-highs: the vocal range. Their clarity at this scale goes beyond their price bracket, and they make it easy to dissect very specific elements of the mix. If you want a second mix opinion with the added bonus of the best recording headphones in the business, go ahead and pick up a pair.

Verdict
For: Clear mid- and high-end response;
comfortable to wear
Against: Very little bass; headphone amp
required for louder volumes
